How? [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 21 October 1880
How? I How doth the busy candidate Improve each stringing hour, And &gt;hake and smile and talk and prate, With most loquacious dower» I How busily he .stores his self, How humorous the chaff he Distributes round him, and how well And thick he spreads his taffy. Who taught the busy candidate i His fellow men to bore? &gt; Who showed him how to rant and prate j ; And shout and shriek and roar* N&lt; b &gt;dy taught him, for he knew Ere the convention met — ; Before election—what lo do, And after—to forget. , Go, child and see the candidate, Strike him for what yon can, ! And then you must not hesitate To "sec" the other man. — [Hawkey c. j
Sleep and Loss of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 21 October 1880
Sleep and Loss of Life. Sleep will do much to cure irritability nf temper, peevishness and uneasiness. It Will build up and make strong a weary body. It ill do much toward curing dyspepsia, particularly that description known as nervous dyspepsia. .It will re« move the languor and prostration felt by consumptives. It will cure bypooondria. It will cure the headache. It will cure the neuralgia. It will cure a broken spirit. It will cure sorrow. Now. no man should lo more work of muscle or of biain in a lay than he can perfectly recover from the fatigue of Hi ft good night's re.-t. Up to hat point exercke is good. Beyond are waste of life.exhaustion and decay When hunger calls for food, the fatigue demauds rest, we art in the Latur.d order and keep himself at his best' and with a true economy. To eat more food than is needful is worse policy than tossing money into the sea. It is a waste of labor and a waste of life. That's the Way.—"We knows tbo public is down on un," remarked the ol...

The latter were all present and were quickly picking up all parcels which were suitable. Holders upon becoming aware of the condition of things were not slow to try tbe market by advancing asking grates, which were freely paid. A good business was done, though there was no excitement.

Our Story Teller. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 December 1880
Our Story Teller. How I «ot Promoted. A f»KTKCHVK'S STORY. "Tom,"' said the chief, "there has been rather a mysteroua robborj at Barrow town, and it's likely to give the •'locals" some trouble. So I wish you to go down as soou as possible.*' This order I received one hot day in August, on the day after the robbery had taken place. Of course I did not let much time pass before I was at the station and fairly started. Once there, Barrowtown is a quaint, picturesque little town like many others in goodly England. It seemed almost too dull to be able to boast the doubtful honor of having had a full-grown robbery. Still, I like the quL-t little town, for it was there that I gained my first promotion. I was met at the station by the local inspector, a stout, pompous, excitable little man, who looked doubtless as to the prudence of the Scotland 1 ard authorities in sending down such an ordinary looking mortal as myself. "Oh," he remarked at last. "So it'.~ you. young man, is it? I don't th...

Eli Perkins at Mentor. In writing of liis visit to Garfield's farm, Eli Perkins says: When I got to Garfield's Mentor farm, I looked around to see the growing crops; but I didn't soe any. •■Didn't the General raise anything here this summer?*' I asked the hired num. •'Certainly, 6ir; but everything has been carried off as mementoes by the visiting delegations.'' "What! Carrots and beets! Have they carried them all off ?" I asked. ''Lord bless yer, yes! And cabbages, too! The visiting delegations have cleaned the farm. The German delegation carried off the last cabbage; and lust week the Irish delegation carried off the last potato! Pumpkins went last Jane. The Indiana delegation took 'cm; and after Grant and Conkling and Cameron left, we couldn't find a briar-wood pipe or a meerschaumliolder on the place. You ought to have heard the General talk, though, when they carried off his carrots P '•Why. who carried off the carrots-." "Well, the last delegation was a dooryard full of women ...
Some of the Laws of the Motion of Heavenly Bodies. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 December 1880
Some of the Laws of the Motion of Heavenly Bodies. Sir Isaac Newton demonstrated that to describe a parabola, the projectile velocity mnst be etpial to that acquired by a body falling through the distance of the attracting body; a less would make the body describe an elipse; a greater would make it describe a hyperbola. A velocity acquired by the body falling through just half the distance, would make it describe a circle. Kepler's first law: "The orbits of the planets are elipses, having one focus in common and within that common focus the sun is situated."' Kepler's second law: "The radius vector of a planet passes over equal areas in equal times." Kepler's third law: "The squares of the planets times of revolution aronnd the sun are proportioned to tin; cubes of their distances from it.'* It follows that no definite projectile velocity was necessary to lie given tho planets to keep them from going to smash, as is believed by many. The only necessity being that they should have a ...
Facts Worth Remembering. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 December 1880
Facts Worth Remembering. One thousand shingles, laid four inches to the weather, will cover one hundred square feet of surface and live pounds of shingle nails will fasten them on. One-fifth more siding and flooring is needed than the number of square feet of surface to be covered: because of the lap in the siding and matching of the floor. One thousand laths will cover seventy yards of surface, and eleven pounds of lath nails will nail them on. Eight bushels of good lime, sixteen bushels of sand, and one barrel of hair w ill make enough mortar to plaster one hundred square yards. A cord of stone, three bushels lime, ami a cubic yard of sand, will lav one hundred cubic feet of wall. Five courses of brick will lay one foot in bight on si chimney, nine bricks in a course will make a flue eight inches wide and twenty inches long, and eight bricks in a course will make a fine eight inches wide and eighteen inches long.

Accidental Discoveries. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 December 1880
Accidental Discoveries. Valuable discoveries have been made and valuable inventions sugges ted by the veriest accidents. An alchemist, while seeking to discover a mixture of earths that would make the most durable eru eibles, one day found that he had made porcelain. The power of lenses, as applied to the telessope, was discovered by a watchmaker's apprentice. While holding spectacle glasses between his thumb and linger he w as startled at the suddenly enlarged appearance of a neighboring church spire. The art of etching upon glass was discovered by a Nuremberg glass-cutter. By accident a fewdrops of aciua fort is fell upon his spectacles. He noticed that the glass became corroded and softened where the acid had touched it. That was hint enough. He drew figures upon glass with varnish, applied the corroding fluid, then cut srway the glass around the draw ing. When the varnish was removed, | the figure appeared raised dark ground. Mezzotino owedjitfl invention to the simple acbident ...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 December 1880
The Antioch Ledger re-published our editorial recommending a resurvey of the county line and its location on section lines, without comment. Give us your opinion of the plan, Bro. Abbot. The weather during the past week lias been warm, for this season, and unusually favorable to vegetable growth. The gravelly lands about our town have already assumed a covering of emerald, and the south slopes of our hills are fast following suit. The germination on adobe lands is slower, but the warm, moist weather has started nearly every seed, even there, and should this weather hold, our \ alley will, within a fortnight, be completely covered with a carpet of green. Our farmers never had a better season for turning under and killing the foul stuff. The recent heavy rains have completely soaked the ground, every seed is starting, and by the time the land is ready for the plow, will have reached the proper stage for turning under. Our prospects for anathor bounteous harvest are now most flattering...
